On March 13, 2006, Abbott Diabetes Care of Alameda, California, announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market its FreeStyle Freedom blood glucose-monitoring system for consumer use.

According to Abbott, FreeStyle Freedom measures glucose levels using 0.3 microliters of blood—“the smallest sample size required of any blood glucose-monitoring product on the market.” FreeStyle Freedom also provides results in five seconds and features a large, high-contrast display, making it easy to read and easy to hold.
